STBX signed it, what does it mean for me regarding the decree? We're doing a pro se divorce..
Waiver of service/citation
In my state, the state is giving the attorneys the ability to mail summons instead of subpoena people because it saves them $60 per case. It's not legally binding so you can walk out at any time in the summons and if you don't show for it, there's no penalty but then they will subpoena you to appear. BUT they have to get your waiver of a legal serve in court stating that you are aware that you are not bound to appear and that you can be subpoenaed to appear if you prefer(ie, to get the day off work from an uncooperative employer).
